Transcript of Child Labour
the fact that
halfway around planet
is forced to miss out on all the things
that you have
while you are busy living a comfortable life??
The International Labour Organization estimates that 215 million children ages 5-17 are engaged in child labour
An estimated 12 percent of children in India, ages 5-14, are engaged in child labour activities
Some children are forced to work up to 18 hours a day, often never leaving the confines of the factory or loom shed
One in six children 5 to 14 years old - about 16 percent of all children in this age group - is involved in child labour in developing countries.
In the least developed countries, 30 percent of all children are engaged in child labour
The ILO defines child labour as the full-time work done by children under 15 years of age that prevents them from going to school, or that is dangerous to their health
In sweatshops children are subject to extreme exploitation, including the absence of a living wage or benefits, poor working conditions, and arbitrary discipline, such as verbal and physical abuse.
Since they are paid less than their daily expenses, they are never able to save any money to improve their lives. They are trapped in an awful cycle of exploitation.
Child Labour is one of the saddest issues the world is facing. Many children all over the world start earning at the age which is actually meant to play, study and learn. This age is to enjoy and have fun with friends, and not to pull rickshaws or clean cars and autos. Child Labour deprives a child of the basic right of education.
Poor families having a number of children barely survive on the meagre income of only one family member . So they make their small children their source of income.
The demand for cheap labour by contractors means that children are often offered work in place of their parents. With such narrow margins, contractors such as produce-growers and loom-owners know that children can be exploited and forced to work for much less than the minimum wage
A child has to work against the repayment of a loan which was taken by his father who was unable to pay it off. Bonded child labour normally happens in villages. Such children work like slaves in order to pay the loan taken. Not only poor families, but some well established business families also put their children into business at a quite young age instead of making them complete their education.
LACK OF KNOWLEDGE
Young workers are unaware of their rights and less likely to complain or revolt. Thus, employers are able to extract work from children without the fear of any legal action.
In many countries, the legislation is simply not effective enough to support these workers. A toothless legislation gives a free reign to the employers.
A family living in poverty
cannot afford to send their
children to school
Children are forced to work
Children receive little or no education
Children grow up without basic skills and education, they remain in low-paying (and often dangerous) work
Girls marry young and
Now they have a number
of children to support with
They lose their jobs to younger
employees and there are fewer
opportunities for adult employment
Many develop severe health problems due to their working conditions.

THE DARK WORLD OF
Child labour deprives a child of a proper childhood
The child suffers physical and mental torture.
It condemns the child to a life of unskilled, badly paid work.
Children work under very unhealthy and hazardous conditions. Their working environments are so unsafe that fatal accidents are an everyday routine
Use the media
Change the way you shop
Certified non-child labour clothes
Do something like we did
Put up Posters
Demonstrate your individual passion
Hand out leaflets
NEVER, EVER GIVE UP!!!!
MAKE AN EFFORT TO TRANSFORM THEIR LIVES
Every child has a right to not have to work for a living
Every child has the right to go to school and get an education
Yet millions never go to school.....
....because they already have jobs. They work in factories and fields, hotels and homes...
